Self Driving Cars a.k.a. the Totally Cool Future of Autonomous Cars

by Brian England on Wed, Aug 19, 2015

It seems that articles about self-driving cars (autonomous cars) have been all over the press lately.  What you may not realize is that you don't have to wait another five to ten years to experience what it's like to sit behind the steering wheel and have the car drive itself.  In fact, my wife Jen, who is not extravagant when it comes to cars, recently decided upon a 2016 Acura RDX.  

She upgraded from a 2000 Acura TL, one of only two cars she's had in the last 32 years -- the 2000 Acura and a 1983 Chevy Caprice Wagon.  Both of those cars had over 100,000 miles on them, and they were in good condition when she upgraded to a new vehicle.  (Of course, as you would expect, they were very well cared for, safe and reliable, helped along by regular preventive maintenance from the staff at BA Auto Care!) So, this year, it was my wife Jen's turn to purchase a new car.  We change our cars like clockwork, every 15 years. Waiting 15 years between car purchases means we see giant leaps forward in technology with each new car. My turn to switch cars comes in 2019, and who knows what kind of great technological advances will be available by then.  Already a lot more 2016 cars have an advanced electronic package that includes adaptive cruise control, lane deviation warning, and lane deviation assist.
